My bike was stolen at some point overnight between 6/13 and 6/14. The front wheel and frame were locked to a street sign on the south sidewalk on the 1500 block of W. 18th Street, right outside the closed Tortilleria Sabinas. After noticing the bike was missing on the morning of 6/14, you could tell that someone had removed the bolt fixing the street sign to its base so that they were able to lift the street sign and remove the bike.
